The Federal Budget: What Does it Mean to You? 

And What Can You Do About It?

with Michael Kane and Molly Hannon


Set your Internet Browser to OBR.FM.

It's the election season, and it seems every candidate has an opinion on the
Federal Budget.  How do you know who to believe?  Why should you care?

Our guests, Michael Kane and Molly Hannon, are activists who have devoted
long hours, over the years, learning to understand the Federal Budget, what
it means to them and to their communities, as well as the politics of what
gets funded and why, and what citizens and activists can do to influence the
process. We'll be discussing the budget, itself - How big is it? What does
it fund, and how much? Who decides what it is? - as well as budget focused
activism, and, in particular, a ballot question many Massachusetts residents
will get to vote on, this November: the Budget For All
<http://budget4allmass.org/>  referendum.

Michael Kane is a lifelong activist and community organizer, currently with
the Mass Alliance of HUD Tenants <http://www.saveourhomes.org/maht/>  (MAHT)
and National Alliance of HUD Tenants (NAHT), the only national tenants union
in the US since 1992. MAHT has helped tenants save more than 11,400
apartments in the state since 1983, one building at a time, and has
spearheaded fights to save federal funding for housing from right wing
attacks in Congress. MAHT joined with peace and labor groups to initiate the
Budget for All referendum campaign earlier this year.

Molly Hannon is a working mother of two from Roslindale, and a long time
tenant leader with the Mass Alliance of HUD Tenants, who helped lead the
fight to save affordable housing at High Point Village (now Stonybrook
Commons) and other at risk housing developments. Molly is a well-known
activist with Occupy Boston, and collected hundreds of signatures to place
the Budget for All Referendum on the ballot in Roslindale, West Roxbury and
other communities.

A good website for information about the Federal Budget is the National
Priorities Project
